3 Game-Changing Tips for Packing Up Your House

#1 Rent Your Boxes

Most moving companies allow you the option to rent boxes from them. The major benefit to this is that you don’t have to spend time tracking down boxes from friends and neighbors. If you’re considering renting boxes, make sure that you do the math. You can use websites like this one to determine how many boxes you might need for your home. Also, companies like BungoBox, offer eco-friendly solutions for moving boxes. If you’ve never heard of them, go ahead and check them out!

#2 Label Boxes Donation

Never pack anything that you don’t want for your next home. We know a family that decided they were going to donate five boxes of things before they moved. To stick to their goal they got five empty boxes and labeled each “donation”. Then as they packed, they put the things they no longer wanted into these boxes. They said it felt awesome being able to donate so many things to people who needed them. And they loved not having to transfer the extra boxes into their new home on moving day. Pretty cool, right?

#3 Price Out the Professionals

Don’t just assume that movers are out of your price range. Moving companies vary drastically in price and are often cheaper than you might expect. Plus, they offer a wide array of services from doing everything to just selective rental services. So, before you just assume that you have to do all of the heavy lifting alone, go ahead and contact local moving companies. You might be surprised at how much stress is relieved when you hire professionals to help you in the moving process.


If you’re in the process of moving, we hope that these small tips are game-changers for you and your family. Remember this process can be challenging, but it’s also temporary. Keep your head up and stay positive!
